Student Stacey Fletcher writes of Hyde St keg party 2013,
the year of the tight restrictions.
Emergency services, the University of Otago and the students'
association (OUSA) have hailed Saturday's Hyde St keg party
as a well-run event.

about the 2013 Hyde Street Keg Party
Dunedin has turned on a stunning day for the Hyde St Keg
Party, and a good-natured crowd has caused few problems so
far, police say.
Today's Hyde St keg party will serve as a ''test case'', and
if it gets out of hand the North Dunedin liquor ban could be
back on the table, University of Otago vice-chancellor Prof
Harlene Hayne says.
Dozens of extra emergency services staff are on standby in
Dunedin for today's Hyde St keg party.
Students in Hyde street are planning to stash friends in
their flats overnight after new rules restricted numbers at
the annual keg party.
Those who think the University of Otago has gone too far in
tackling problem drinking should study elsewhere, the
chairwoman of a group tasked with improving the student
drinking culture says.
The Otago University Students' Association has settled on a
range of measures to make this year's Hyde St keg party
safer, including a ''one-way'' policy from as early as 2pm.
Hyde St tenants will meet other keg party stakeholders today
to further discuss plans for this year's party.
